It's pretty much the same story every time some idiot comes here and starts
trying to convince every one how good amsoil is. The best argument they can
ever come up with is a cut and paste from amsoils own web site.
Well, y'see, Andy... I don't recall anyone here saying "Andy, can you please
tells us all about that miracle lube called Amsoil??? It must be wonderful
stuff and our internet doesn't have Google and all that other stuff".
Looking at your posting history (or at least a portion of it) we can deduce
that you are, most probably, a SPAMsoil "dealer".... and you are out
trolling for suckers.... all the while, being oblivious to the fact that
usenet was not designed to be an avenue of free advertising for shysters and
They were the fist ti introduce a synthetic oil for the automotive
industry. Mobil 1 was two years later. Amsoil came out in 1972,
Mobil 1 was in 1974. There were synthetic lubricants before, that
were used in the aviation industry.
Ok, to quote the wikipedia article...
The first company to develop an API-rated 100% synthetic motor oil
available in the United States was Amsoil Inc.
There is no mention that MOTUL had an API-rated oil.
First you attack wikipedia, then you quote it. BUT, if you click on the
superscripted  by the quote, you'll see that it was entered by, (can you
guess?. . .)
"Ed Newman is Marketing Manager for AMSOIL INC."
That's like asking Famous Amos who makes the best cookies in the world!
I'm not here to slam or praise Amsoil, but if you want to lend a little
credence to your statements, you need to quote someone besides your own
